Field of Study:
This three-year Ontario College Advanced Diploma program, accredited by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) under the National Technology Benchmarks, prepares students for careers in architectural offices and the building industry by integrating the relationship between conceptual solutions and working drawings. The first four levels of the technology stream, which are common to the Architectural Technician program, are followed by an additional two levels of study concentrating on commercial detailing.
The curriculum emphasizes an in-depth understanding of the many facets of building and construction including residential and commercial building envelope design, working drawings, construction documentation, construction methods and materials and 3D computer visualization applications. In addition, students participate in a student-directed team project aimed at reconciling the many considerations in designing a building, including aesthetic and technical resolution.
Students who have completed all of the course requirements for the first three levels of the Architectural Technician program are eligible.
